You're in the wrong field. You should totally be a psychologist.

I'm just pro-choice. No one here is unintelligent. We can all make our own decisions without having someone trying to force their opinions down our throats, even if they are well thought out and informed opinions. As stated before, I have seriously considered this advice myself.

We don't know the extent of how much the OP "knows" or what extra information would help. For example, OP did not say he knew the LST stats for these schools, or the salary statistics, etc. If OP wants to come to TLS and post a thread asking for advice then he has opened the door. You're not a mod, and it's not your right to tell others what they can and can't say in reply.

Lol. I didn't know you had to be a mod to have an opinion. But, I'll keep that in mind.

Read my comment again. It's hypocritical to tell people that you're "pro-choice" but that they shouldn't exercise their choice to tell OP if they think these law schools are bad investments at this price.

You should re-read my posts as well. I have no problem with giving information that law schools are a bad investment. My point was (and perhaps it did not happen in this thread yet), often times when giving advice, it becomes more of shoving it down the OP's throat even if the advice had been acknowledged.

I reserve my right to comment on the fact that simply presenting information instead of trying to force-feed it works just as well.

That's not what you were saying:

That doesn't really sound like a comment, more of a scolding or a command.

Still, you haven't answered my question. How do we know OP is actually informed? Are we to assume without evidence that people who come to TLS looking for information somehow have informed themselves already?

Does anyone know how LST is calculating the cost of living for UF? They say it's $127,000 total. That is where I am getting my $100,000 figure from. The Levin website says it is about 15k per year. If that is right then the total cost of attendance is about $75,000.

I am very adamant about going to law school. I am not confused about the state of the legal market or how bad it is in Florida. I only made this thread to see if Emory has something that I'm not seeing.

I believe school sites only account for the 9 months you'll be at school and not the year. And don't forget the 8% interest accruing.

It's a $1200/mo payment on the 10 year plan. Doable, but doesn't leave a lot of breathing room especially if the 50K job doesn't come with benefits.

You could probably calculate your own cost of attendance easily. Obviously it is going to cost a different amount for each person. Do you have a $200 car payment? What about insurance, phone bills, etc? I spend $15,000 per year just in rent, utilities, and food/gas alone. That doesn't include any of my other bills. If you know that you will walk to school and only spend $50/week on food, split an apartment and pay $250 in rent, and your parents are still paying for your car, cell phone, and medical insurance, your cost of living will be significantly less than mine. I would just do your own calculations-- just don't forget to include the possibility of needing a new laptop, shoes, etc. (Miscellaneous).

$250 in rent? I split a house 5 ways and I am still paying $400. I guess if there were bunk beds involved... That's good advice though.

Oh, I don't know, lol. I toured a few three bedrooms that were going for like $900-1000 so I just figured it was cheap. I was just trying to show the extreme difference between each student (a roommate situation vs. someone who has a 2 bedroom to themselves) and the benefit of calculating your own cost of living in each place :).
